Jim Elliot wrote these words during his years at Wheaton College, a time when he prayed for God's direction for his future as a missionary. Where would God lead this unusually dedicated and versatile man? Born into a godly family in Portland, Oregon, Jim was a dynamic speaker who had memorized literally hundreds of hymns, a Greek scolar, and a college wrestling champion. Again writing in his college journal, Jim welcomes the greatest sacrifice to serve His Lord: 'Father, if Thou wilt let me go to South America to labor with thee and to die... let me go soon.' Years later that request would be fulfilled, on a beach of the Curaray River, deep in Auca Indian territory - in eastern Ecuador. But God's plans for Jim Elliot's extraordinary witness would not end there. The seeds of a heretofore impossible ministry had been planted.--Back cover.
